If you’re starting your last year of studying A Levels, you need to start thinking about what you’re going to do next. If you’re planning on further study, it’s never to early to start thinking about where.
It’s more complicated than just looking at league tables, though that’s not a bad place to start. You can find a short list of universities that perform well at the subject you want to study and make offers within your projected grade range.
Once you have this short list, you need to look at other things you choice will offer: the clubs and societies supported by the university, the local nightlife and if the university has a reputation for fun or sober study, and other utilities in the surrounding area. There’s no one objective choice about which university is best, you have to add up all of these factors to find out which is the best place in the UK to study for you.
With literally dozens of higher education institutions, offering qualifications all across the academic spectrum, it’s natural to look at London as a place to study.
It certainly offers you lots of opportunities, not just to learn but to make friends, find new experience and even make an early start on your career with work experience and internships available through your course in one of the most fast moving cities in the world.
Be aware that it’s quite an expensive place to live – you may need to find some part time work that doesn’t interfere with your studies to make ends meet.
On the other hand, if you shop around, you’ll find some incredible deals for services that could really help you out. For example if you’re looking for cheap storage London byStored is one of the newest to open. There are more springing up all the time and this means you can keep your possessions safely stored, and either rent your room out or simply take a shorter lease so you’re not paying during the holidays for a house you’re not using.
If you’re considering living in London when you study you’ll need to consider clever, money saving work arounds like this to avoid overspending and make sure you can focus on your studies.
